Screenprinted Watercolor Monotypes
Nike screenprinted watercolor monotype
The screened watercolor monotype process begins by painting or drawing an image onto a clean silk screen with water-soluble materials such as watercolors or water soluble crayons. Clear transparent base is flooded across the screen several times to rewet the dried pigments. The screen is lowered and a squeegee is used to force the watercolor from the screen and onto a sheet of paper placed beneath.
The result will always be different from the image created on the screen. It’s that element of surprise which I find so exciting.
